Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake is back in Flirt, the upcoming novel in the ass-kicking Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. Yay! Flirt is set to hit stores on February 2, 2010.
“When Anita Blake meets with prospective client Tony Bennington, who is desperate to have her reanimate his recently deceased wife, she is full of sympathy for his loss. Anita knows something about love, and she knows everything there is to know about loss. But what she also knows, though Tony Bennington seems unwilling to be convinced, is that the thing she can do as a necromancer isn’t the miracle he thinks he needs. The creature that Anita could coerce to step out of the late Mrs. Bennington’s grave would not be the lovely Mrs. Bennington. Not really. And not for long.”
I am beyond excited for this one! I am so glad that Anita is back to the necromancy storyline, I’ve missed the old Anita stories. Hopefully in this upcoming book we get the same mysterious plot and badass Anita from the old books and a little less boy drama from most recent books.
After reading Laurell’s blog post on Flirt I am even more eager for it to come.
“What do you get that you haven’t seen before? You get to see Anita with three of her guys on a lunch date. You get new bad guys, professional bad guys. You see a new werelion group and find out some of what Haven has been saying behind Anita’s back. He’s been a bad lion. You get to meet a new victim, or romantic interest for Anita, depending on how you want to look at it. […] Remember her day job? That whole zombie raising thing, well, we get to see her do that again, a lot of that again.”

Oh, and if you’re lucky enough to live in Atlanta, Georgia you can go to the Flirt book signing where not only will you see Laurell K. Hamilton but also the hilarious Jennie Breeden of “The Devil’s Panties” (one of my fave comics). Details here.
